Laravel Maps

Laravel Maps is a simple package that helps you connect laravel with Google Maps WebServices.

Installation

Composer

Install this package on your Laravel 5.5+ with the follow command:

$ composer require dnery/laravel-maps:2.1.*

Or add the package to require object of your composer.json file

{
    "require": {
        "dnery/laravel-maps": "2.1.*"
    }
}

To use this package on Laravel 4, install the older version of the package:

$ composer require dnery/laravel-maps:1.0.3

Without Composer

Just download the repository and install under the vendor/ folder in your laravel project.

After installing the package in your project, add the package's Service Provider to app/config/app.php in the providers section:

'Dnery\LaravelMaps\LaravelMapsServiceProvider',

Also add the Alias of the LaravelMaps package, in the aliases section:

'LaravelMaps'	  => 'Dnery\LaravelMaps\Facades\LaravelMaps',

Publish the configuration file of the package in your project:

php artisan config:publish dnery/laravel-maps

Usage

First, fill your api_key (you can find it in your painel at Google Developers Console) in the generated config file, located at app/config/packages/dnery/laravel-maps/config.php. After this, all you need to do is initialize the LaravelMaps with the name of the webservice that you want to use.

$geocode = Laravel::init('geocode')

Currently, LaravelMaps can integrate with 4 webservices from Google Maps:

  • Google Maps Distance Matrix API (https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/distance-matrix/?hl=pt-br)

LaravelMaps::init('distance-matrix');

  • Google Places API Web Service (https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/?hl=pt-br)

LaravelMaps::init('places');

  • Google Maps Geocoding Api (https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geocoding/?hl=pt-br)

LaravelMaps::init('geocode');

  • Google Maps Directions API (https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/directions/?hl=pt-br)

LaravelMaps::init('directions');

When using Geocoding, Directions and Distance Matrix API, just call $maps->process($params); - You can find the params for his use in the respective API, at Google. (Links above)

When using Places API, call $maps->run('method', $params);
